Simon & Malou - no time for love

94 min.DK/Feature

"Life is what happens to you while your're busy making other plans" - John Lennon. Circumstances force the unstructured yet charming Danish novelist, Simon, to share his flat in Copenhagen with the very organised and beautiful Swedish lawyer, Malou. Simon dreams of children and a family. Malou is solely focused on her career. And even though opposites do attract: can they manage to live together? Against all odds, this meeting sets off a chain of events, which ultimately will change their lives forever...
